Celebrity couple hit out as paparazzi scare their toddler

Nicole Richie and partner Joel Madden have complained about paparazzi frightening their daughter, Harlow


The famous daughter of singer Lionel Richie, Nicole Richie and her partner Good Charlotte frontman, Joel Madden have hit out against paparazzi who frightened their toddler daughter, Harlow.


The family were returning to Los Angeles and were mobbed by paparazzi in Miami Airport. Joel said his daughter was left scared and confused after the incident.

Joel Madden posted on his Twitter account: “These guys were sticking flashes in her face and bumping into us and yelling. The most unnecessary force I’ve ever seen. It was the first time I have ever seen my child scared.”

He reportedly wanted to lash out to protect his family but said: “You can’t get violent in front of kids. That’s a rule with me.”

He added: “While my career path is my choice, my child should be off limits. Leaving clubs and restaurants you got to expect it. But this was just wrong.”


Joel and Nicole announced in February that they are expecting their second child in late summer.
